Private Homes, Southwest house description

Waterfront canal location with boat access to the Gulf of Mexico, Sanibel Island and Ft. Myers Beach in minutes.

With Travertine Floors throughout, this Four bedroom home with three full baths is the ultimate in casual luxury. You enter the home through oversized raised panel mahogany doors with leaded glass inserts over a mosaic floor medallion and are immediately struck by the direct view through the vaulted ceiling Living Room onto the pool deck and the canal beyond. This Living Space offers a 50 inch flat panel HDTV. The large kitchen, with granite counter tops and stainless appliances opens up to the Hearth room with a large wood burning fireplace. The Formal Dining room doubles as a Library reading room flooded with natural light. The split and open floor plan has a master suite boasting a second wood burning fireplace, king size bed and en suite bath with jetted tub, oversized separate shower, dual vanities, private privy and walk-in closet. The master has direct French door access to the screened lanai with vanishing edge pool, spa and 3 waterfalls making for a tranquil sanctuary from the rest of the over 2,500 s.f. home. Two bedrooms are designed for couples with luxury linens on queen size beds and private access to adjacent full baths. Bedroom four is great for the kids or golf buddies with twin beds and direct access to a full bath. A queen air mattress with linens is also provided.

The canals are teaming with wildlife including many game fish. Dolphins and Manatee in search of food migrate up the canals and have been spotted frequently in the canal.

Activities include Kayaking the canals and lakes with the Chiquita house Kayaks and equipment just out the back door. Shelling at Sanibel or Captiva is only 30 minutes away. Fun in the sun and souvenir shopping are only 30 minutes away at Ft. Myers Beach or 15 minutes to the Cape Coral Beach. The pool and spa are just steps away.

Nearby Matlache’ offers antique shops and art galleries just a short drive away.
The summer homes of Ford and Edison and museums are only minutes across the Caloosahatchee River.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: As working professionals and parents we treasure the time we have to share with our family and friends. Nothing is more relaxing and enjoyable to us than to visit our home in Cape Coral. Here we can escape the stress of work and the hustle and bustle of our sports schedules.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Southwest:
                  Visiting the area with friends we fell in love with the Southwest Florida area. It has so much to offer as a vacation destination. We have met so many new friends in Cape Coral and found connections to the area with old friends, business associates and acquaintances at home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  With our waterfront location, private pool and close proximity to Sanibel, Captiva, Ft. Myers and Cape Coral beaches we have opportunity for so much variety when we visit. The short drive to Tampa or Orlando add the chance for day trips to amusement and adventure parks. Discovery Cove was amazing last October and we always enjoy Busch Gardens and Seaworld. And who doesn't love Disney?
